Wanted: Jack Kirby Machine Man Omnibus

Drawing inspiration from one of my favorite features at The Dork Review, I’m putting out the call for a Machine Man collected edition! I was actually surprised to not have a Machine Man TPB or Omnibus as I searched through the Kraalo Archives this week looking for source material for the Machine Man #13 review. With so much of Jack Kirby’s work already collected, including 1970s gems like Devil Dinosaur, a Machine Man Omnibus seems like a no-brainer. X-51 first appeared in Marvel’s adaptation of 2001: A Space Odyssey #8 (July 1977) so maybe the publication rights to that early work is in question because of the status of that licensing deal. In any case, I hope that Marvel is able to resolve the issues at some point because it would be great to see Kirby’s Machine Man re-mastered in large format with the amazing new coloring they have done for all the Omnibus editions.
